Ep. 84: Pulling Pythons By the Tail and Being Afraid of Snakes with Herpetologist Harry W. Greene

Play podcast


On this week’s show, we’re joined by Phil the Engineer to talk about where we draw the line when it comes hunting, when funerals interrupt elk season, and a Not-So Sharp Moment involving a pet raccoon. In the interview portion of the show we’re joined by Harry W. Greene, a herpetologist who retired in 2016 after working for many years as a professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at Cornell University. We cover life, death, conservation values, and all-things snakes. Enjoy.
